Hamsters naturally eat plants in the wild, which is why it is so nice to offer them this in their enclosure. It is important to be sure that the plants that are given are really safe for the animals. You have us lucky for this! We know exactly which plants you can safely give to your animals.
HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS
The heart of the Hamsterscaper will now beat faster, because a fresh plant in the enclosure is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamsterscaped enclosure. We can actually go in all directions with this, depending on the ground cover. If you use a 'soil-like' soil cover such as humus, you could choose to plant the plants directly in the ground. The roots will then continue to grow in the soil. This way you have a perennial in the enclosure. How quickly the animals eat the plant depends on each rodent species. Mice, Dwarf Hamsters and Hamsters often take it easy with the plants. Gerbils, on the other hand, are more likely to nibble on it.
With hamsterscapes you can also choose to place the plant in a pot in the enclosure. An advantage of this is that it is easier to remove the plant from the enclosure to allow it to grow.
NATURAL BEHAVIOR THANKS TO THE FRESH PLANTS
The plants are therefore nutritious, healthy and also have a very nice decorative function, but there is one more thing we should not forget. The plants promote the natural behavior of rodents. In the wild, rodents are mainly foraging for food and rabbits are actually eating throughout the day. Herbivores (plant-eating animals) have a gastrointestinal tract that can only work if new food is constantly eaten. The new food pushes the old through the intestines, as it were, which is why it is very important that rabbits have hay available all day long.
In the wild, the animals choose their own food, but a large part of the food consists of fresh plant parts. These are chosen for their fiber, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, proteins, but also for their medicinal properties. Many plants are known for their health-promoting properties. The animals know this better than anyone and also in the wild they instinctively look for the right plant for an ailment.
NB! The plants are intended for consumption by the rodents, not as ornamental plants for the home. Some plant knowledge is required to keep the plants alive and beautiful.
